AMR has reached a deal with its unionized ambulance workers, averting a strike.

In a statement released Friday night, AMR expressed "sincere appreciation to our Local, County and State partners who worked with us to develop the necessary continuity plans."

As part of the tentative contract agreement, AMR says Teamsters Local 449 has rescinded the strike order issued on March 22nd.

The contract is being finalized over the next few days.

It is not immediately clear what concessions were made for the two sides to reach an agreement.
